Wisconsin -(AmmoLand.com)- On wednesday, Jan. 20th, the NRA e-blasted the following NRA-ILA alert here in Wisconsin:
articles/20160120/multiple- anti-gun-bills-introduced-in- the-wisconsin-assembly
These democrat bills have ZERO chance of passing, but the NRA is out there shining a spotlight on them in a mass email blast/alert.
AT THE SAME TIME, we have a “School Grounds Carry” bill being circulated for co-sponsors by Sen. Lazich that would insulate us all from a FELONY if we drop off our kids at school armed (or even pull a u-turn in a school parking lot on a Sunday afternoon)… and that DOES have a chance of passing IF people call their legislators and the NRA hasn’t said a word about it.
Why is the NRA expending resources to alert people to bills that have ZERO chance of passing while saying NOTHING about a bill that makes us SAFER, our KIDS safer, and removes an insane provision of WI law that could make a mom or a dad an ‘accidental felon’?????
Contact the NRA. Ask them to step up to the plate for Wisconsin CCL holders.

About Wisconsin Carry, Inc.:
Wisconsin Carry, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and reclamation of the rights of law-abiding Wisconsin residents to carry in the manner of their choosing. We believe that “open carry” and “concealed carry” are choices to be made by law-abiding citizens based on their situation and preference. Wisconsin Carry, like many gun-rights organizations in Wisconsin, is investing a great deal of resources to get Wisconsin law changed to allow concealed carry this next legislative session by proposing Constitutional Carry. Wisconsin Carry, Inc. will continue to use legal recourse to deter unlawful treatment of law-abiding Wisconsin residents who currently exercise their right to open carry, and soon will exercise their right to concealed carry in Wisconsin.

The NRA now only goes after cities and states with millions to gain in lawsuits and trying to collect , like Chicago. Since Heston passed on , NRA is going to LAWYER HELL. And yes lifetime membership paid .
BillyM, there are at least two of us., hopefully many more. Good comment.
Darren- grassroots activists in IL are the ONLY reason we have some form of concealed carry here. Richard Pearson & IL State Rifle Association, the NRA affiliate in IL, opposed concealed carry and did NOTHING to advance it for 20 years. Then Pearson helped recruit Otis McDonald for the Supreme Court lawsuit against Chicago, and now Pearson thinks concealed carry was his idea all along. Then he cuts good old boy deals with police unions to let NRA contract lobbyist Donald Todd Vandermyde put Duty to Inform w/ criminal penalties in the 2013 carry bill. After FIFTY years of no… Read more »
When “the largest pro-2nd” organization in America blindsides you (like in Texas last year), falls on their face in Oregon, or does nothing in New Hampshire (constitutional carry), you have ask yourself whether or not they’ve “gone Washington” or not. Particularly when the mailers for cash never stop flowing.
I must say there is a lot of crying and whining here. What I would like to see is pro-gun citizens willing to discuss issues important to second amendment rights without name calling and infighting within our own ranks. There is a way but it is not with a sour attitude. We will be united as gun owners and users or we will go away, some quietly, some with a bang…literally.
While the NRA does some good it also does a lot of harm. They advocate police power to fight the war on drugs, police power to secure the borders, and military power to fight Islam overseas. In other words, they advocate for the very things that are destroying our liberties. The NRA is wholly behind the powerful government that we have to just trust and hope will not oppress us it is time to turn our backs on that vile organization. Don’t let the Siren song of patriotism fool you. Stand for liberty, not the empire and its police state!
Don’t bother contacting NRA. All state lobbyists work for Chris Cox & Chuck Cunningham at NRA-ILA. I use the word “work” loosely. NRA contract lobbyist for IL Donald Todd Vandermyde put Duty to Inform w/ criminal penalties in Rep. Brandon Phelps “NRA backed” HB183 carry bill in 2013. Cox & Cunningham did nothing about it. I don’t know if they have ever set foot in the state to see what their lobbyist is doing. Armed citizens getting set up, disarmed, raped and killed by police criminals and police impersonators is big business for NRA. The worst possible gun laws give… Read more »
